Blogger and musician Saab Magalona married her bandmate from rock group Cheats, Jim Bacarro on Saturday in Baguio.
Daughter to Pia and the late master rapper Francis Magalona, Saab walked down the aisle in a pale pink wedding gown with a tulle skirt and silk sweetheart-neck bodice.

At the reception, her dress designer Sassa Jimenez talked to Style Bible about the non-traditional color choice. "It's blush, with a little bit of beige," she said. "Saab wanted it to be punk. But Jim also wanted it to still be traditional."
Her solution was to add rhinestones, which they inserted in strips along the waist and corset circling round toward the back.
"And did you see her shoes?" Sassa asked.
"YSL booties," said Adrianne Concepcion, Saab's close friend and de facto stylist for the Eric de Los Santos-clothed bridal entourage, which counted among them: Megan Young, Lauren Young and Saab's big sis Maxene.

Of course, later on in the night, Saab herself gave us the answer when she gamely lifted up the skirt of dress number two (a similar silhouette, also by Sassa, but this time in white). It was a pair of peep-toe leather booties on spindly 2-inch heels. In black. The better to dance to the couple's kicking song requests: the Beatles and '90s hiphop.
"Ride the train," the bride told us, flipping her loose curls back, hands on her adorable husband's hips, as they started a caterpillar on the dance floor.
